The injury to Mauro Bergamasco is very bad news for us because he is a very important part of our team.
He is a key element who can make a big impact when he is playing well and we will feel his absence.
It is going to be very tough without him and we must not forget that he scored one of the greatest tries in the history of the tournament against Scotland in Edinburgh four years ago.
I don't know who John Kirwan will pick in his place but there are several options. Silvio Orlando can play there but another could be Scott Palmer and another option would be Enrico Pavanello.
I still believe Scotland will be our best chance to win a match in this tournament because France and England are very strong teams.
So Scotland is a game we must win but all the same we know that it will be very hard for us. They will be determined to do well because they're in the same situation as us.
I thought Scotland played well against France in Paris, they defended really well and it was just one mistake that cost them the game. But against Ireland I was not very impressed with their performance, I'm sure they can play better rugby than that and I think it will be hard for us.
Kirwan will probably change a few things in the back division. Cristian Stoica is back but I don't know if he will play. Also, we have been missing Gonzalo Canale and the performance against Wales was not very good so I think he will have to make some changes.
Italy Under-20s held off a late Samoa blitz to retain their place in the World Rugby U20 Championship on Saturday and head coach Alessandro Troncon believes the experience will have served as a valuable lesson for his young troops.
